Cranberry Halloween Cake

5-Minute Chocolate Trifle


1 package yellow or white cake mix
Grated rind of 1 orange

Prepare cake according to mix directions, adding the orange rind.  While cake is baking in 2 (8-inch) greased and floured cake pans, prepare Cranberry Filling.

Cranberry Filling:
2 cups fresh cranberries, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 (14-ounce) package creamy white frosting mix (or canned prepared frosting)
Red and yellow food coloring

Combine cranberries, juice, and sugar, and boil for 10 minutes.  Cool, then chill.  Cool cake layers on a rack 10 minutes; remove from pans and finish cooling.  Spread Cranberry Filling between layers.  Prepare frosting mix according to directions, adding enough food coloring to make frosting a bright orange.  Spread frosting on sides and top and decorate with Halloween candies.
